Ahead of today's EFL Cup Round 1 draw at 1:00pm, City received their full league fixture schedule this Wednesday morning.

The opening day fixture at Valley Parade will see McCall's men kick off the new season against the Valiants on Saturday 6 August. The game will act as City's first official fixture since the return of McCall as manager.

City's first away league game of the 16/17 campaign will take them to the ABAX Stadium to take on Peterborough United the following Saturday (13 August 2016).

Other highlights from the club's fixture schedule include a home date with Scunthorpe United on Boxing Day. The Bantams will end the calendar year on New Year's Eve by entertaining Bury.

City begin 2017 with a trip to Northampton Town on Monday 2 January.

Easter will see McCall's side host Oxford United on Saturday 15 April before travelling to Sheffield United two days later on Easter Monday (17 April 2017).

The Bantams' final home fixture of the regular league season will be against AFC Wimbledon on Saturday 22 April.
